Infographic: U.S. Twitter penetration relatively small

I thought this was an interesting infographic. It challenges some previous data that I’ve seen about the popularity of microblogging in Asia, and gives some perspective about local norms around Twitter. In some places it may have more of a utilitarian value (a la Facebook) than in most.

I’m curious to know your thoughts on this one.
